Airtec Double Insulation 1.05 x 25m
Impressed but wondering
I was given this product and used it without knowing what it was. Hence I stuck it on a cold wall with tiling adhesive and then wallpapered over it! As soon as it was up we noticed the difference in the room, it was amazing.
I was wondering about using more of it on another cold wall when I found out what the product is. No mention of sticking it to walls! Have I done OK with it? Could I do the same again?
I would be grateful for any advice! As I say, I think it has worked very well where it is - I just hope it doesn't decide to fall off!

Used a layer of this (with 25mm airgap) above thermalboard and plasterboard in a sunroom. Much simpler and cleaner than mineral wool to install. Will use again.

Very good insulator
Very easy to install .Have covered the whole of the underside of the garage roof to improve heat retention and keep out dust.

not as effective as claimed
To say that this product provides thermal resistance of up to 1.5 1.5W/mÂ²K is in my opinion misleading; this is a calculation based on the whole construction, not just the insulation material.
The literature provided from the manufacturer states, rather un-clearly, that thestated thermal resistance values can only be achieved in a construction where the insulation is held between 25mm battens,and in this configuration the insulation material is only responsible for 8.4% of the stated thermal resistance values. ie. a similar construction where the insulation is replaced with a plastic vapour barrier would give almost the same result.
